  • Description

    THE AMERICAN TENNIS PLAYER, CHARLIE PASARELL, CONTINUED HIS 'REIGN OF TERROR' AT WIMBLEDON TODAY (WEDNESDAY) WHEN HE BEAT AUSTRALIAN BOB HEWITT IN THE SECOND ROUND OF THE MEN'S SINGLES TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS. ON MONDAY PASARELL MADE TENNIS HISTORY BY FEELING THE DEFENDING MEN'S SINGLES CHAMPION MANUEL SANTANA IN THE FIRST ROUND OF THE CHAMPIONSHIPS.

    PASARELL'S PROGRESS TODAY MARKS HIM AS A FAVOURITE FOR THE WIMBLEDON FINALS TO BE HELD NEXT WEEK. HIS OPPONENT, AUSTRALIAN-BORN BOB HEWITT, NOW HEADS THE SOUTH AFRICAN RANKINGS. HOWEVER, WHEN IT CAME TO PITTING HIS ENDURANCE AGAINST THE AMERICAN-BASED PUERTO RICAN, HE WAS UNABLE TO OUTLAST PASARELL. PASARELL, THE UNITED STATES INDOOR CHAMPION FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS, BEAT HEWITT 6-3, 6-8, 6-2, 6-4.

    PASARELL NEXT MEETS AN UNRANKED BUT TENACIOUS CANADIAN, FRANK TUTVIN, WHO AFTER FIGHTING THROUGH LAST WEEK'S QUALIFYING TOURNAMENT, REACHED THE THIRD ROUND OF THE CHAMPIONSHIPS TODAY.
